As .a pre-event to the Hawkesdale 150th celebrations, our school organised a Grandparents Day. The response was fantastic with a large number of grandparents and parents who took up this opportunity. Time before lunch was spent in the Library with grades prep to 6, listening to a reading of the book by Rachel Tonkin “When I was a Kid“.
Then the picturesque country grounds of our school became a picnic scene, parents and students enjoying their lunch in the school grounds. An enjoyable afternoon was enjoyed with old fashioned tabloid games being played by all. These games included marbles, hopscotch, hoola hoops, skipping etc.
If you attended this day, we would love you to comment below and tell us what you thought of it. Thank you for coming.
